Aerodactyl is a Rock, Flying-type Pokémon from the Kanto region. It does not evolve into or from any other Pokémon. It can Mega Evolve into Mega Aerodactyl after being given a certain amount of Mega Energy.
Aerodactyl is a Pokémon from the age of dinosaurs. It was regenerated from genetic material extracted from amber. It is imagined to have been the king of the skies in ancient times.
Mega Evolution awakened some dormant genes, bringing back the sharp rocks that once covered Aerodactyl's entire body.
